Chapter 4 Transient Heat Conduction 4-34 An egg is dropped into boiling water. The cooking time of the egg is to be determined. Assumptions 1 The egg is spherical in shape with a radius of r 0 = 2.75 cm. 2 Heat conduction in the egg is one-dimensional because of symmetry about the midpoint. 3 The thermal properties of the egg are constant. 4 The heat transfer coefficient is constant and uniform over the entire surface. 4 The Fourier number is τ > 0.2 so that the one-term approximate solutions (or the transient temperature charts) are applicable (this assumption will be verified). Properties The thermal conductivity and diffusivity of the eggs are given to be k = 0.6 W/m. ° C and α = 0.14 × 10 -6 m 2 /s. Analysis The Biot number for this process is Bi hr
